Hello, and thanks for visiting my site. I am an evaluator and researcher who studies both formal and informal STEM education programs. My favorites are those that are particularly tricky to study, like science festivals and citizen science projects. I received fantastic Ph.D. training in the psych department at Duke, and have applied my skills to the field of education since 2002.
I started doing independent consulting work in 2007 and founded KPC in 2010, with a focus on STEM education. I split my time between providing external evaluation services for some and collaborating to publish educational research with others. A lot of my most recent work has focused on evaluation capacity building, and a number of the resources on this site are from those projects.
